when negotiations with the taliban move forward and it also may have very big repercussions for the u.s. effort in the south. people called president hamid karzai's brother a corrupt gangster. but the cia's former head of counterterrorism says the u.s. may miss him. >> it's quite like live that what follows is going to be something that will not work to our interest. >> reporter: an afghan official says he was gunned down in his own home, shot in the head and chest by his own guard. the taliban took credit, but it's not clear if the shooter was really working for them. >> the united states condemns in the strongest possible terms the murder of president karzai's half brother in kandahar. >> a u.s. official said quote, while we must deal with ahm ahmed wali karzai, he's widely understood to be corrupt and narcotics trafficker. the state department and u.s. military were trying to build trust in the afghan government. they frequently criticized ahmed wali, but the cia worked with him. >> i think often parts of the u.s. government were working at cross purposes where ahmed wali was conce

speaker john boehner today. not going for a big huge deal now. this is part of what chuck schumer had to say -- >> shannon: your response? >> i suspect that is more of the grand politics that you hear playing out there. because it was never put on the table. the kind of reform that john boehner has been asking for, the kind of reform i'm talking about. what was put on the table was again, tax hikes on the wealthy. so that we can do less spending reduction. we've got to get out of that paradigm. we've got to get out of the politics. some of the politics poll really well. one of the problem we're having now is pollsters are at full employment. and politicians are following what they are telling them. it's telling them on the one hand don't put social security or medicare on the table. don't talk about those things. on the other hand, just talk about taxing the rich. you will be fine. but that doesn't help us get to a solution. >> shannon: we certainly hope that you find one. we know you are busy not only with the gang of six or five or whatever it currently stands to be but with everyth
